Abstract

Background:

To investigate the efficacy and advantage of combining situ-morcellation with continuous-fill-mattress suture compared with conventional morcellation and suture in laparoscopic myomectomy.

Methods:

One hundred sixteen patients who underwent laparoscopic myomectomy from March 2014 to October 2016. Interventions: Patients were divided into combining situ-morcellation with continuous-fill-mattress suture group (n = 62) and conventional group (n = 54), and subsequent statistical analysis the clinical data of the 2 groups.

Results:

The combining situ-morcellation with continuous-fill-mattress suture group shows significantly decrease of surgery time, incision size, blood loss, postoperative drainage volume and time, postoperative vent time, hospital stay and the loss of hemoglobin value. Moreover, there is significant significance between the 2 groups in the surgery time (P = .018), the postoperative drainage volume (P = .000), and the loss of hemoglobin value (P = .000).

Conclusions:

The combining situ-morcellation with continuous-fill-mattress suture shows significant advantages in shortening surgery time and reducing blood loss compared with conventional group in laparoscopic myomectomy.
